I'll Take A Celeb With My Swag...

So during the course of conversation today someone mentioned how kewl would it be to have a celeb at a party. I replied, "So build it into your budget." They didn't know what I was talking about, in fact, was unaware that celebs are commodities, their inventory is their time, so pay up and they are yours - within reason - for an evening.

Let's be realistic, if you are opening a club, you spend an easy $2500 just on swag or ads. Sell a few more cocktails and have a celeb there as well. Here are some of the going rates (most everyone will have an entourage of 1 plus require travel expenses (air fare, ground transport, hotel, food, etc):
  • Kevin Federline: $12k + travel expenses for entourage of 4
  • Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas: $50k + 1
  • Dear or No Deal Models: $1k + 1
  • Cindy Margolis: $15k + 2
  • CC Deville of Poison: $5k + 2
  • Jamie Kennedy: Currently on tour but will party with you after his show for $10k
  • Steve O from Jackass: $18k + 2
  • Ron Jeremy: $3,500 + 2
  • Dave Navarro: $10k + 2
